March 2, 2015 2015, Books on my radar 3

  Each month I write about the books I’ve noticed and think might be good. Sometimes they’re from favorite authors and other times by a new author. I don’t buy all the books since I already have way too many books to read and sometimes these new books have high prices 🙁 But the list I make each month helps me not forget books. The Goodreads links help me keep track of these books and I hope people reading my post may find some new books, too! March 3 One of my favorite series!
